§17. Labor of human beings is not a commodity nor an article of commerce and shall never be so considered or construed.
No laborer, worker or mechanic, in the employ of a contractor or sub-contractor engaged in the performance of any public work, shall be permitted to work more than eight hours in any day or more than five days in any week, except in cases of extraordinary emergency; nor shall he or she be paid less than the rate of wages prevailing in the same trade or occupation in the locality within the state where such public work is to be situated, erected or used.
Employees shall have the right to organize and to bargain collectively through representatives of their own choosing. (New. Adopted by Constitutional Convention of 1938 and approved by vote of the people November 8, 1938; amended by vote of the people November 6, 2001.)
re: The Cement League & its phony Provisional Carpenter rate ordered by the corrupt unilateral direction of Douglas J. McCarron clearly violate the NY State Constitution as the "prevailing rate" is the Union Rate for Manhattan and the 5-borroughs.
Moroever, it violates the UBCJA Constitution (the very document McCarron uses in every NLRB or Court case he files, wherein he falsely claims that the UBC Const. supersedes every Federal law on the book and the Congressional mandate to initiate legislation or to alter and amend laws passed) as noted below:
STANDING DECISIONS OF THE GENERAL EXECUTIVE BOARD
1887 September 17....Grading wages is demoralizing to Union principles and to the welfare of the trade and no Local Union should adopt the principle of grading wages.
The "Provisional Carpenter" rate and the "New Local" proposed by Douglas J. McCarron violates the very same UBCJA Constitution which the UBCJA cites in every case it submits in any forum or court of law, as the 'law of the land' and which it uses to win cases, decision & orders (notwithstanding the multitude of violations of Federal law (the NLRA, ERISA, EBSA etc.) contained in its current version which the UBCJA & McCarrons criminal co-conspirators & fellow racketeers and puppet masters use to their advantage in direct collusion with the NLRB & the Federal District Court, SDNY in NYC.
*** The "Provisional Carpenter" rate violates both state & federal law and the operative and standing decision of the UBCJA Executive Board as it is a "graded wage" and benefit package less than the negotiated/executed Union rate for similarly situated workers.
*** The NYC & Vicinity District Council of Carpenters (NYCDCC) is the "Local Union" as it directly controls every CBA/contract and it and it alone negotiates and executes every CBA/contract in direct and open collusion with the District Council attorneys, the Court appointed Review Officer and the United States Attorneys Office for the S.D.N.Y.
